The Worst Blush Ever?

From my whole collection if I had to choose one product which was the absolute worse and that I never ever reach for it would be Maybelline Dream Mousse blush. This is actually a real shame as I feel that British drug stores really lack in cream blushers and this could be a really good one.

This blush is a whipped consistency with quite a good range of colours. It is from the same range as the Dream Mousse foundation which isn’t terrible, however I honestly only have one problem with this product and that’s the glitter. I don’t really like shimmer to begin with however this product has about much colour as silver sparkles it highlights all my skins imperfections. The Dream mousse shimmer defiantly has ‘shimmer’ but at least with this product you expect to get shimmers, this does make quite a good highlighter but I don’t think it is a very natural colour.

I think this product has great potential and I would love it without the shimmer, if you don’t mind lots of shimmer in your blush then this is a good product, applies well and lasts long and it’s a great price.

This isn’t to say that Maybelline doesn’t have good blushers; I love their mineral blush I reach for it as much as my Mac blushes.

What do you think of these products?

  3. I dont think I have found any shimmer in my mousse blushes... I have peach satin, dolly pink and coral and I find all of them to be pretty matte with no shimmer? Or maybe Im just not seeing them because Im not looking lol. I do love these blushes though! I havnt tried the highlighter... I hate glitter, but love a bit of shimmer :)

  5. I have peach satin and I absoutely love it, but then again, I'm loving shimmery blushers at the moment. The high street definitely needs more cream blushers though x

  6. I have a blush mousse and the shimmer, both I really like. Suppose it's different for everyone though. I love the way you can blend it without it being too much.

  10. I have two of these and I just don't like them at all! I find they don't blend well and just sit on top of my skin and highlight all my imperfections. It maybe because my skin is very dry but I don't find that they are at all creamy. I much prefer Max Factor's Miracle Touch Creamy Blush! :-)

  14. i was a huge fan of these blushes, but in my country (greece)they did not have shimmer. i used coral, i bought it over and over and then it stopped being on the market. when coming to uk it was the first thing i looked for and i was utterly disappointed with these shimmery stuff. where's the good stuff?! nikki, where did u buy your shimmerless blushes from? thanks. maria
